From Monsignor's Talk after the International Rosary and Mass on Saturday August 4th
Rules for Perceiving and Knowing

Welcome to St. Anthony Parish Family

In 1930, during the time of our nation’s great Depression, our parish launched a bold initiative—-the construction of a new beautiful church building. Financially our parishioners were suffering dramatic economic hardships—along with the nation as a whole. And yet, in the great spirit of St Anthony parish, the parish family creatively met the challenge, resulting in the beautiful building in which we now worship and call our home.

How did they do it? The “old timers” told me that the many ladies who baked bread in the out-door ovens which dotted the southside would sell a loaf of bread in order to purchase a brick for the church building. Many loaves of fresh bread—-baked in love— along with other acts of sacrificial giving on the part of so many—-helped build our church.

And so our beautiful story continues........................

Our Mission Statement: To make life-long disciples, baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them in all aspects of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

We welcome you to St. Anthony Parish, we welcome you to this website - full of information about our parish, school, and ministries. And if you are looking for a spiritual "home", we hope you look first at St. Anthony Parish.

May God Bless You,

Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo
